Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. We will request that you complete our patient forms. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition. Please allow 20 – 30 minutes to complete the paperwork in the office.
You may complete the paperwork in advance by selecting the “Online Forms” under the “New Patient” drop down. You will need to print and complete them and bring them with you to your scheduled appointment. Please allow 10 minutes prior to your appointment for us to take a copy of your insurance card, photo ID, and take posture pictures.
If you have any questions regarding this process, please call us, we will be happy to answer your questions.
Next, you will have a consultation with your doctor to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for your doctor to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.
After your consultation, your doctor will perform a complete chiropractic examination testing your muscles, reflexes and flexibility. Other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well.
We do not take x-rays in our office and they are not required for treatment, although we are happy to review any x-ray studies you may have. In some cases they are warranted and will be ordered.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, your doctor will answer any questions.
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your spine, your doctor will discuss recommendations. Your doctor will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of your examination and findings you will be given your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, the doctor may suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include: ice or heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at home exercises and/or stretches. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve good spinal alignment, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
